hello ... work done this year on the car , my last event was on the rain .. and so my car was ok , unfortunetly i came 4th ... because of a bmw with rain tyres who was faster by 0.2 of a sec faster (he got a little dry ground) but 1st and 2nd were some golf putting down over 270 bhp , so i will start saving money for a big turbo and some minor stuff also a LSD :D to be ok for next year , in wet i went about 15.8 sec in dry almost a sec faster so 14.8 sec is pretty ok with stock tyres maybe faster with slicks (ok for my little turbo) i hope next year i touch the 13.99 sec mark
Here are some movies with some cars , bare in mind my start was at 1000 rpm ... everything above that i would of staid in place ... so pretty ok only half of 3rd and 4th were down ok ..

about 2500 euros (and for friends a little low ) , i spent way more than this to get it this far (if you can believe double and something)
For it to be racing ready next year (to have a chance wining the championship ) it needs a bigger turbo , oil cooler , and intercooler (the intercooler i will get this week so it comes with the car)
Also an LSD :wink:

hello , you will need to sand it with sandpaper , finer and finer .... until you get a mirror finish (lot of work ... ) and at the end you can buy a special purpose solution for aluminium... to give it a polish ....

Now for the car :
Bought new parts
intercooler
65 mm piping for the intercooler
new turbo
and some 17" c4 vts by leob rims from a friend

to buy
oil cooler
lsd
new injectors


and some pics
